Intro:

Zimbabwe's contracted tobacco farmers commended Chinese firm, Tianze Tobacco Company, for its continued support of tobacco growing in the southern African country, which led to an increase in production output of the golden leaf this season, state radio reported on Tuesday.

Out of the 13 tobacco contracting companies which are operating this season in Zimbabwe, Tianze Tobacco Company, which contracts more than 250 growers, continues to lead in both the seasonal and daily average prices.

Farmers contracted to the company hailed the support they received, saying the inputs and financial support have boosted the production of the golden leaf tremendously.

We applauded the way Tianze is operating as well as the favorable prices that it is offering, though we feel they should now increase their prices," a tobacco farmer told ZBC News.

Genetic variants, tobacco exposure and lung cancer risk 

Jump to full article: EurekAlert, 2012-04-26

Intro:

There is an association between the rs1051730-rs16969968 genotype and objective measures of tobacco exposure, which indicates that lung cancer risk is largely, if not entirely, mediated by level of tobacco exposure, according to a study published April 25 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

The rs1051730-rs16969968 genotype is known to be associated with heaviness of smoking, lung cancer risk, and other smoking-related outcomes. Prior studies have generally depended on self-reported smoking behavior, which may have underestimated associations and masked the contribution of heaviness of smoking to the associations of these polymorphisms with lung cancer and other health outcomes.

John Lydon Calls For Smoking Ban Review 

Jump to full article: ContactMusic.com (uk), 2012-04-26

Intro:

Rocker John Lydon is urging British Prime Minister David Cameron to overturn the U.K.'s smoking ban, insisting it's a "ludicrous" law.

Legislation prohibiting tobacco smoking in public buildings was introduced in 2007, but the punk icon has never been a fan of the law and now he's suggesting citizens should to be given the option of going to venues where they are allowed to light up.

The Sex Pistols star tells Nme, "It's ridiculous you're forcing people out onto the streets. Save the health of non-smokers within? Then have smoking-environment pubs! Give people the choice.
